Solid 3 star app
Will it turn into a star app, exceed the users expectations and receive a lot of phone time? There is work to do on the testing field before that will happen.
Video play right now is adequate at best. Sometimes there is flawless execution while other times it acts like it doesn’t know what to do, getting lost in the screen and frustrating the user.
Performance is another questionable area. App requires the user to force a refresh, it needs the encouragement to recover relative to other apps. If it wants to move up the depth chart, it should self refresh.
Right now this app looks the part. Passes the eye test, solid UI and certainly what it brings it will see some screen time - albeit limited. Unless this app wants Users to keep seeking other apps for certain situations, it needs to work harder to get better in certain areas.
Only time will tell if Rivals will become a star in this store or remain muddled in mediocrity and lost deep in the depth chart
I often has issues when trying to watch a video that's been posted to message boards. Sometimes the video decides to play without ever expanding to fit my screen so it makes watching football highlight videos nearly impossible since they're already filmed from far away... Another issue when playing video is they will never orient themselves properly when I turn my phone sideways to expand the size of the video. The video itself will not even recognize that I've turn my phone horizontal, it just keeps playing as if my phone was being held vertically. Every now and then the video will orient itself according to how I'm holding my phone but it's very rare. This is not a phone hardware issue as the problem has persisted on multiple new phones.
App is trash, better than website
The app is not good. It is basically just a barely-better version of the website. You don’t get alerts, the message boards don’t refresh automatically, there is a bug that has been around for years that show message board posts as duplicates, etc. it looks like rivals doesn’t invest in this part of their business, so the usability is crap.
Update: the app is now forcing me to log in every time I open. Terrible experience, but expected.
Update: app is now crashing on launch with an iPhone 11.
